Generic labels of greed, incapable to fight, feeling guilty being thrown at Hindus here in BRF? Member of this forum should be above these traps laid by our colonist masters and propagated further by INC ecosystem.

Hindus have a culture of resistance and defense. We are around and thriving is a sufficient proof of this. In INC years Hindus were psychologically manipulated to rely on law, and kept divided in caste and other affiliations disabling them to take things in their own hands when needed. While the other communities have been continuously fed the victimhood narrative tying every minor thing to their survival. They believe that even when the realities are completely different. How is that contradiction possible without serious state driven manipulation.

We need identify the real reasons instead of trying to justifying our current behavior with these self-flagellation driven labels.

Not quite there mate.


When 12% nominal growth rate is normalised as the “hindu growth rate”, instead of 2.5% as in the 1960s then history will be (re)written.

Why foreign diplomats become wolf warriors in India

While Indian ambassadors to Pakistan and China virtually stay locked up in their embassy compounds and are shadowed by intelligence toughies, their counterparts in Delhi along with others have a free run with no restrictions on their travel or with whom they meet.

The deliberate revisitation of the Gujarat 2002 riots by UK State broadcaster BBC in a documentary aimed to politically target Prime Minister Narendra Modi cites a secret inquiry conducted by a junior diplomat of the UK High Commission in the western state at that time with the slanted report then circulated to EU Envoys in the Capital. It is understood that the French Envoy to India at that time apprised the South Block about the toxic report being circulated among the EU diplomats. The secret inquiry was ordered by then UK Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, then an MP from the Mirpuri Muslim-dominated constituency of Blackburn.

The then Foreign Secretary Kanwal Sibal warned the foreign missions against interfering in the internal affairs of India after informing the then External Affairs Minister Jaswant Singh about UK diplomats breaching diplomatic protocol by conducting secret inquiries in Gujarat and circulating anti-India reports among other EU envoys.

This raises a fundamental question of why the government allows foreign diplomats a free run during their postings in India with the Ministry of External Affairs often being kept in the dark.

While Indian ambassadors to countries like China and Pakistan are aggressively shadowed by respective intelligence agencies with even their interlocutors physically and mentally harassed to no end, the representatives of the same countries hardly have any restrictions on them and were feted by the Indian elite not so distant time ago. The same applies to ambassadors of the UK, US, Russia and even Germany, who were treated at par with Union Cabinet ministers in the past and could easily walk into any office without informing the MEA.

The fact is that diplomats of India’s adversaries are known to hold select briefings to convey their national interest, a privilege which is not accorded to Indian ambassadors posted in these countries. One must not forget that a Chinese junior diplomat posted as Consul General in Mumbai openly took on then Defence Minister (later President of India) Pranab Mukherjee at a public meeting on his characterization of the 1962 war. While the Indian ambassadors and diplomats in Beijing and Islamabad are often confined to their own diplomatic compounds rather than run the risk of intelligence toughies, their counterparts in Delhi were permanent invitees to cocktail parties hosted by Delhi elite till the other day.

In this context, the Pakistan ambassador to India and his junior diplomats were toast of the Left-Liberal elite ecosystem of Delhi over Urdu “Shayari”, kebabs and the days gone by. It was the same conflict resolution ecosystem that favoured a dialogue with Pakistan by creating an illusion that civilian leadership in Islamabad was different from the muftis in Rawalpindi GHQ over ties with India. The fact is that both Pakistani civilian and military leadership have a visceral hatred for India and lose no opportunity to try and pull India down in international fora with the tacit support of iron brother China.

It is no secret in Delhi that foreign embassies are in touch with activists and NGOs and more than often lobby in their own national interests. The status of P-5 ambassadors in India apparently is nothing less than that of a Union Cabinet minister with full security paraphernalia and round-the-clock guard. It was not so long ago that ambassadors of US, UK and China, all of a rank of secretary to the government of India, could make political comments in India with impunity.

The Chinese ambassadors to India have been wolf warriors in this respect as they invited ranking Indian politicians to present the PLA version of the 2017 Doklam crisis. Can an Indian ambassador to Beijing invite a ranking official of Communist Party of China to do the same on the 2020 East Ladakh aggression?

from the net


Many of you are aware of a new documentary series, produced by the BBC on PM @narendramodi. In the first episode, @BBCTwo tried to give a clean chit to the extremists who set the Sabarmati Express on fire in Godhra & burnt 59 Hindu pilgrims alive.

At about 9:12 minutes into the episode, it claimed,

"The final death toll was 59 and the cause of the fire was disputed.
But at the time, Muslims were blamed."


So who burnt the train?

The judgment of the special fast track court on March 1, 2011, has the answer.

11 extremists were handed the death penalty for orchestrating the carnage.


Names -

Abdul Razzak Kurkur, Ismail Suleja, Jabbir Binyamin Behra, Ramzani Binyamin Behra, Mehboob Hassan, Siraj Bala, Irfan Kalandar, Irfan Patadia, Hassan Lalu, Mehboob Chanda, & Salim Zarda.

Now, tell me the religion of these men @BBCTwo ?

Shamelessness has a limit. You cannot dispute a truth that is carved in stone.




For the past 20 years, the 59 Hindu pilgrims who were charred to death have not been able to rest in peace

20 convicts awarded life imprisonment for 'Godhra Kand':

He is sitting in a Nordic country. These countries strategically run church operations in Asia. They have reared many such opportunist stooges from India to keep attacking Hindus / BJP / Modi on Twitter, writing articles, giving TV bites. These Indians are given some position in some think tank /university, etc. in their country to pretend as if they are there for some legitimate purpose. But their visa is conditional on how vigorously they attack heathen leaders in India. So this dude is singing for his supper, and he wont' stop as his career progression is contingent on his attacking "Hindu supremacists" back home in India. Govt. recently moved to cancel his OIC card, but the dude quickly moved supreme court against it, saying he has an ageing mother to look after in India.

Swain, who has been living in Sweden for the past 32 years, was granted an OCI card on January 14, 2020, by the Centre.

https://indianexpress.com/article/citie ... d-8313557/

This also shows Modi Govt.'s stupidity -- why give him OIC card in 2020 and then rush to cancel it two years later?

Swain is a professor and the head of the Department of Peace and Conflict Research, Uppsala University, Sweden. He is also a UNESCO Chair on International Water Cooperation since 2007.


See how Whites give some worthless positions to House Negros to give them some legitimacy in eyes of heathens

^^ MEA seems be in it’s own orbit. They selected a Canadian sikh for pravasi bhartiya award, who actively supported and campaigned against farm laws.
Swain is another example where the left does not know the right.
It’s up to netizens to inform the government about these lapses. Again lack of will to reform the institutions has been the bugbear of this government.

India is less polarised than most democracies. Not surprising given that there has been a popular/stable government for 8-9 years now. Remarkable achievement given India is now not just the world’s largest democracy but already probably the largest polity.

This is based on a broad survey and has been done for many years - it is not a narrow survey of so called experts. Of course any such study can never be perfect - it has to be triangulated with other data points. Indian PM’s popularity in other surveys does tend to back this up.

Why can't we keep maintaining after working so hard to clean that place? Why can't we maintain it like Indore?

^^^ Yep. Garbage on streets problem is mostly about how the grbage got there. If the garbage at the bins/dumpsters get cleared, then it not the fault of the civic authorities (not sure if the Pune residents were complaing about garbage on the streets or garbage overflowing from bins/dumpsters.)

I recently went to a large city in South India recently, and I saw municpal garbage workers- three women, sweeping the footpath at 2:30 or 3:00 in the morning! I cannot get how footpaths in large cities are swept by hand and yet the munipal people (At least in some munipalities) do it.

Reminds me of a comment by Narendra Modi (PM of India) on TV . As a kid he told once his mother when he saw a garbage man coming over: Maa dekho kachdaa waala aa raha hai (Mother, look.... the garbage man is coming). His mother (now diwangath, told him): Bete, woh kachda waala nahin hai. Woh kachda saaf karne wala hai. Kachda toh hum karte hain (He is not a garbage man. He is a garbage-cleaning man, it is us who create the garbage). Last sentence I do not recollect exactly so I paraphrased it.

How George Soros co-opts the media and keeps criticism down
https://nypost.com/2023/01/23/how-georg ... cism-down/

CNN’s Christiane Amanpour sits on the board of the Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit investigative journalism group funded by Soros, that critics charge mainly targets Republican fundraisers.
NBC’s Lester Holt, the Washington Post’s Sally Buzbee, Associated Press executive editor Julie Pace, and Reuters editor-in-chief Alessandra Galloni all sit on the board of the Committee to Protect Journalists, a Soros-funded organization that purports to defend the rights of journalists.


CBS’s Margaret Brennan and CNN’s Fareed Zakaria serve on the board of the massively influential Council on Foreign Relations, a Soros-backed think tank specializing in US foreign policy.
NBC’s chairman Cesar Conde is on the board of the Aspen Institute, a Soros-backed think tank. In recent years, it launched a left-leaning commission to combat so-called disinformation, and was implicated in the suppression of the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story in the recently released Twitter files.
NPR’s president and CEO John Lansing is connected by the direct funding Soros gives his publication.
PolitiFact editor-in-chief Angie Dronbic Holan serves on the board of the Soros-backed International Fact-Checking Network, which has openly pressed Facebook to censor what it considers misinformation (i.e., anything that goes against the liberal narrative), and serves as the “high body” for dozens of fact-checking organizations under its umbrella.
And it shows in their coverage. Not only does Soros fund the media to push his radical-left agenda, his funding has the added effect of insulating him from criticism.

As Vazquez and Schneider include among their examples: During a PBS segment in 2018, Amanpour had on Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó and used the opportunity to accuse his boss, Prime Minister Viktor Orban, of being “anti-Semitic” for cracking down on the billionaire’s influence in his country.


Meanwhile, Soros was spending $5 million on the effort to thwart Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyer Debra Katz was vice chair of the Project on Government Oversight, which has been directly funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundations.

SEE ALSO
George Soros is the most dangerous man in America. The investor is intent on remaking the country to his liberal image, from our foreign policy priorities to undermining our criminal-justice system.
George Soros spent $40M getting lefty district attorneys, officials elected all over the country
NPR has received nearly $2 million from Soros in the past to hire up to 100 new reporters. When Spanish language broadcaster Radio y Televisión Martí ran a 15-minute segment on the influence of Soros, warning that he has his “eyes on Latin America,” NPR branded it “taxpayer-funded anti-Semitism against George Soros” (referencing the fact that Radio y Televisión Martí is funded by the US federal government). It also voiced support for the US Agency for Global Media launching an investigation into it as a result.

This “Any criticism of Soros is anti-Semitic” narrative has naturally spread to other left-wing publications, such as the Associated Press, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and seemingly everywhere else. So mindless is this type of charge that one publication, Moment Magazine, accused the Jewish prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, of anti-Semitism for daring to criticize Soros.

Soros went into overdrive in funding his media empire in the Trump era, with other research from the MRC finding that from 2016 to 2020, Soros dished out at least $131 million to influence at least 253 journalism and activist media groups to promote far-left views on abortion, economics, the police, environmentalism, LGBT ideology, and anti-Americanism. A common strategy for when those outlets report on any misdeeds of Soros is to frame the allegations as “conspiracy theories” from people with sinister motives (similar to how the media will phrase Republicans reacting to Democratic misdeeds or failures as “Republicans pouncing” — as if they’re the ones in the wrong). Publications that employ journalists that also serve on Soros-funded boards include the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Baltimore Sun, CNN, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, ABC News, the Sacramento Bee and countless more.

Others will simply downplay any alleged wrongdoing or accept Soros’ counternarrative without question. One such example came back in 2021 when the left-leaning journalism nonprofit ProPublica (which receives just under 2% of its funding from Soros) released a report that used 15 years of confidential IRS records to calculate the effective tax rate that billionaires pay on their fortunes (which was low because unrealized capital gains aren’t taxed).

A US based short selling firm called Hindenburgh has announced that its taking up short positions in Adani companies alleging massive accounting fraud and irregularities. It further has accused SEBI of not acting against Adani group inspite of this.

The attacks are coming quick and fast.

yep. This is a shady company. They short stocks and do hit jobs.

They would have done this little later but they are worried about all the development projects like Vande Bharat express, Highways, strong Indian economy. They feel pressured to stop the momentum because people are forming opinions.

This is is classic conflict of interest. The accuser gains from the loss of accused so the accuser will accuse even more. Exactly what Congress has done to Modiji for decades. It also lines up perfectly with Church/NGO/Commie/Congi ecosystem interest.

Reminds me of the hot roti lesson that Chanakya taught to Chandragupta Maurya. If you want to eat hot roti start from the periphery and work inwards.

^ Exactly this. The report has already reduced Adani holdings value by 4-6%. All on the basis of a vague report and accusations and very little blowback.

Next who ? Prashanth Bhushan and Asaduddin Owaisi :roll:

Looks like a some political calculation but uncalled and unnecessary. Yadavs wont split and vote for bjp imo.

On the other hand, Byrappa, kapil kapoor got their due.

Naah to attract Shivpal Yadav and other voters away from SP. If we can praise Lehru ji and have a holiday on his name, and sing peons on the Mughals, have name, road, history book, and all that...what is wrong in giving mulla Mulayam or powerful person if it advances the cause of India and Sanatan?
I know you guys are the greatest, perhaps the incarnation of the Lord himself, but rest of us are mere mortals, we can be wrong and Hippocrates, right?

When Muslims can embrace Shiv Sena/Uddhav, it clear politics is about short term goals and oxymorons. Mulayam being awarded has to be seen on similar lines, which is a good move by BJP. It is completely wrong to fight about “purity” when the other side is full of oxymorons and contradictions. Winning elections is everything and short term moves , unnatural alliances are key part of it.

very true, especially when onion merchants who are proven anti nationalists and enemy collaborators were also accorded such honours by the same govt.

This is a calculated move, just like it was with the onion guy with whom the gamble did not payoff, but OTOH, today, that guy is adrift, stuck in a corruption limbo, and languishing in the political wilderness, completely emasculated and his legacy will soon be flushed down the toilet as he is not long for this world and his carefully crafted dynastic succession plan is in shambles.

that tactical padma lulled the opposition, and they saw a soft and apprehensive centre, more willing to concede and compromise, rather than confront.

Just as they were meant to see.

the mailed fist was hidden, deceptively shrouded behind that padma

the point to note is that a new govt is in place in MAH and that too in pole position for the next elections and the rest of the vasooli gang are already in jail or on their way there very soon

You just have to look at andhra cowboy naidu's plight to see how these guys operate

It was the "alliance" with clueless mehabooba mufti that laid the groundwork for the swift and totally unexpected art 370/35a strike on cashmere.

It is believed that, by being a part of the cashmere govt, they had unfettered access to all the locked away classified files pertaining to the shenanigans of neverwho and sheik abdullah and all the IB reports of the time

Make no mistake about the centre, because since vajpayee, they have come of age...

^^ Not sure if this is sarcasm. BJP is clueless as it comes to identifying friend vs foe. Proven again and again.

They have to wean significant percentage of Yadavs in UP/Bihar away from scoundrels Akalless and Laloo.

Might work or might not but even if 5% move away, it is good.

We don't speak ill of dead people.

^^ Does not even register in the minds of voters. But keep doing the same thing and expect different result.
